Halloween Brewing

London Fields Brewery are launching a range of Halloween themed beers just in time to celebrate in scrumptiously spooky fashion.

Pumpkin amber ale is infused with spices with hints of cinnamon, cloves and nutmegs to give you a mildly winter warming while Gyle 666 is a spiced brown ale for the more stoutly of drinkers.

To celebrate they are hosting a special Halloween party on Thursday the 30th of October from 6pm with spooky tours of the brewery also going down.

Becca Dudley 201014

On this weeks show Becca explored our favourite picture filtering app Instagram and the do’s and don’ts of pleasant pix taking. Shoddy camera work, blurred lines and full holiday albums were all examined in great detail.

We had some new and exclusive tunes from Gentleman’s Dub Club and their latest release #Pressure, some
Chronixx with Alpha & Omega plust Major Lazer with – Watch Out For This. We also heard some expletives from Snoop Dogg who’s birthday it was!

With all the buzzing bass, the tone was taken down a peg or two with a couple of baby making jams to get snuggling to and get the bass shaking in your place.
